Title
Daily dietary total arsenic intake in Belgium using duplicate portion sampling and elemental content of various foodstuffs
Author
Abstract
Daily dietary total arsenic intake by adults in Belgium has been re-evaluated by duplicate portion sampling, heating of the samples in a micro-wave oven and atomic absorption spectrometric determination of the element. The mean intake value was below the 30 mug/day-detection limit of the method, except for fish-based diets. Arsenic analysis of various foodstuffs revealed that rice products, but especially fish and fish products are important sources of this element.
